“I really loved the writing and plot of this novel. It moves quickly, and will keep you engaged and turning the page all the way to the end. It is romance centered, and the chemistry between the two main characters is electrifying. The suspense aspect of the book weaves seamlessly in with Piper and Aiden’s story, adding twists and turns to the plot that will have you saying, “Just one more chapter.” The dual point of view is also flawless. I had no problem hearing the difference between Piper’s voice and Aiden’s, and I absolutely loved getting the story from both their perspectives. Piper and Aiden are both extremely likable and endearing characters, and together they are magic on the page. Piper is kind and big hearted, and I absolutely loved how well developed her backstory and found family were in this book. Aiden is a little bit of the stereotype of the tall, dark, and brooding alpha male, but I adored him. He is the perfect romantic lead for Piper.”

Piper is new to town and starting over alone. A terrifying encounter in the woods one day sends her stumbling into the care of a brooding stranger. Now, in an effort to protect her from an uncertain danger, they’re thrown into close quarters and spending all their time together. As their bond grows Aidan reveals the shocking connection between what she witnessed in the clearing and his tragic past. He’s been punishing himself for too long and Piper’s ready to help him finally move on.

Aidan has demons that he’s unwilling to face, but he’s determined not to let history repeat itself. He just needs to keep things with Piper distant … professional. Though he tries to fight it, the connection between them is overwhelming. Being around her has those carefully constructed walls of his coming down and his willpower waning, but is he really ready to let her in? One thing’s for certain, he’ll do anything to keep her safe.
